- Princess Charlene of Monaco is being treated for mental and physical exhaustion.
- Prince Albert, Princess Charlene’s husband, said her condition had nothing to do with their marriage.
- Instead, he cited the princess’ recent “surgeries and procedures”.
Her husband, Prince Albert, said Princess Charlene is being treated outside of Monaco due to emotional and physical exhaustion, adding that it had nothing to do with their marriage.
Albert, 63 people said that when the 43-year-old princess returned to Monaco after a six-month stint in South Africa, “it became clear that she was doing well.”
Charlene met Albert and their six-year-old twins Prince Jack and Princess Gabriella on November 8. He said the princess would likely need several weeks of care, saying “she was exhausted and unable to handle official duties, life in general, or even family life.”
Albert also noted the consequences of Charlene’s recent “surgeries and procedures” which had led to heavy losses. The princess underwent two corrective surgeries after a sinus infection in May.
“That was definitely a factor, but at this point I’d prefer not to comment further,” Albert said. “I can tell she was unbelievably tired. She didn’t sleep well for a number of days and wasn’t eating well at all. She lost a lot of weight, which made her vulnerable to other possible illnesses – cold, flu or Covid.”
The prince also denied rumors that Charlene’s absence had anything to do with their marriage.
“I’ll probably say this many times, but it has nothing to do with our relationship,” he said. “I want to make it absolutely clear. These are not problems in our relationship; they are not in the relationship between husband and wife. They are of a different nature.”
Speculation about marriage problems started to circulate after Charlene missed their 10th wedding anniversary. Albert told People he wanted to put several bits of gossip to rest.
“Because I know there are rumors out there, let me say: This is not Covid,” he said. “It’s not about cancer. It’s not a personal relationship issue. And if you want to discuss other speculation, it’s not about plastic surgery or facial work at all.”
